Description

Name became the self-described foreman of the Factory, his duties including working as an archivist, secretary, security guard and electrician. “Billy was the one Andy counted on,” journalist Glenn O’Brien wrote in the foreword to the retrospective book Billy Name: The Silver Age.

One day, Warhol handed Name a camera and said: “Here, Billy, you do the stills photography.” Name went on to take thousands of photographs of the comings and going at the Factory, including Warhol’s coterie of “superstars” who starred in his films, including Edie Sedgwick, Candy Darling, Baby Jane Holzer and Joe Dallesandro.

He also captured other visitors including Bob Dylan and the Velvet Underground. Name’s photographs are included on the sleeves of The Velvet Underground and Nico, their first, Warhol-produced album, and their self-titled third record. He is mentioned in their song That’s the Story of My Life.
